Outpatient Oncology Services
Outpatient Oncology Services, located in the 830 Building, Suit 150. St. Rita's Outpatient Oncology Services include:
- Chemotherapy Infusion
- IV (Intravenous) Hydration
- Transfusions of Many Types of Blood Products
- Oncology Procedures (Such as Bone Marrows)
All of the nurses are cross-trained to work in both the outpatient and inpatient units, with 100% of the nurses being certified in oncology nursing (Oncology Certified Nurses-OCN). Certified oncology nurses assure patients they are receiving care from the most qualified nurses in the field. St. Rita's Outpatient Oncology Unit also has a dedicated oncology social worker, a dietitian and spiritual care services to help patients and their families.
The unit's hours are what make St. Rita's Outpatient Oncology Services unique. Instead of having specific closing hours, treatments are scheduled around the patient's daily routine, allowing patients to maintain as normal a life as possible while receiving treatments. Many of the patients choose to receive treatments in the evening, after their work day.
St. Rita's offers numerous support services and support groups to assist patients and their families in the fight against cancer diseases.
